36 cards in one day!


Ok, so they are the simplest cards ever, but I'm still quite pleased with myself!  I realised today that Morgan still needed a LOT more cards for his classmates, and I thought while I was making them I might as well make a few more for the neighbours, hubby's work etc.

Used little 10cm square cards, and embossed them with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder.  Added big Cuttlebug snowflakes cut from raspberry and teal Papermill cardstock, with silver card candy centres.  My Big Shot has had a workout today!  I know they're not very exciting - but never mind, at least they're done!  I couldn't get a pic of all 36 cards, because the kitchen table where I take my pics is overflowing with stamps, paper, ink pads, and all sorts of other stuff that's supposed to live in the craft room.  Must get more organised after Christmas...

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
